/**/ If you are able to copy the exact state of a brain to a fresh new one, none of them will have any means to determine which is the copy or the original.
/**/ This in itself gives us some insigth on the idea of consciousness. For example, whenever such ideas as Cyc delivers a program capable of beating Touring's test, we will have to admit its consciousness, since it's the same as if we copy all our brain to a new one. What I mean bythat is that if you take a picture of a given state of the brain, you can predict it upcoming behavoir, the same will be true to this Cyc like programs.
